    Hey bmorgan and welcome to the forums.

    Are you aware of Fermats theorem and Eulers theorem for exponent problems?

    Also are you doing this as part of structured coursework/research or as something akin to self-study?

    Boy, am I confused!
    bmorgan appears to have written
    but chiro quotes
    I really wish people would not edit quite so heavily!!

    But the original problem posted is certainly non-trivial while the new one is, to put it simply, trivial- at least to anyone who would be expected to solve the first problem.

    bmorgan, do you know what "logarithm base 10" means?

    100000000 equals 10 to what power?
